2013 Harborfest sponsor naming rights for venues announced

Written by

     Many great sponsors are what make Harborfest continue to be an admission free festival entering its 26th event this July.

     While a complete line-up of entertainers and performances are located in the "Entertainment Tab," several sponsors need to be recognized for their support of the many venues at Harborfest.
     The Oswego County Federal Credit Union Jazz & Blues Park will again be in Washington Square. The Labatt Blue Light Jazz & Blues Stage, located within the park and presented by local distributor Eagle Beverage Company, will have some of the best entertainment ever offered at Harborfest for jazz and blues fans.
     The Novelis Family Park will again be in Franklin Square. This popular venue, centered on family fun and children's activities, will have elements of science and math with multiple interactive displays during the weekend.

     Oswego Health and The Palladium-Times will sponsor stages in the park and the Children's Parade, which will originate from Breitbeck Park on Friday at 1:30 p.m. will end in the Novelis Family Park. In addition to sorted entertainment in the park, The Oswego City-County Youth Bureau will be sponsoring the 2013 children's musical "Ellis Island...The American Dream" which will be performed by area students.
     NRG Oswego Harbor Power will again be the title sponsor for the Lakeview Stage in Breitbeck Park. The stage will again play host to great national entertainment acts from Thursday night right through Sunday afternoon. The Thursday night opening ceremonies and concerts on the NRG Lakeview Stage and the Friday morning "Bridge Street Live at Harborfest" will both be sponsored by the C&S Companies.
     The Friday headliners, Foghat and Blue Oyster Cult, will be sponsored by Budweiser, through their local distributor Eagle Beverage Company, and Constellation Energy Nuclear Group.
     C's Beverage Center Veterans Stage at River Walk West will showcase a variety of local and regional entertainers including a return of the "Battle of the Bands" on Friday afternoon.
     Community Bank lends their support on Saturday to a day full of great musical performances. Also, centered off of River Walk West, the Port of Oswego Authority will be sponsoring the return of the popular Tommy Typhoon Jet Ski Show all weekend long.
     Oswego Harbor Festivals, a federally registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, could not put on Harborfest each summer without the support of the sponsors   that make it possible. The 26th annual Harborfest in 2013 runs from Thursday, July 25, to Sunday July 28.
